The Ackerson Law Offices are currently interviewing potential clients and working with other law firms protecting the rights of children and their parents affected by a mother’s unsuspected use of Topamax while pregnant. These claims are against the pharmaceutical manufacturers who promoted the use of Topamax for uses which were not approved by the Food & Drug Administration. The makers of Topamax promoted the use of the drug for off label uses such as the treatment of migraine headaches.
Use of Topamax by women who were pregnant increased the likelihood that the child would be born with a cleft lip, a cleft palate, or other birth defects. If you are a parent that has a child with a birth defect and Topamax was used by you or the mother during the pregnancy, you should know your and your child’s legal rights. You and your child may be entitled to be legally compensated for the birth defects of your child has suffered.
